This Physics Simulation tries to find out the M51-a Galaxy Evolution. One big Black Hole in the center of NGC 5194 holds the spiral dynamics while another lighter black hole flies near the big one and is captured in a circular orbit. On the way nearby stars form the satellite galaxy NGC 5195.

This video has been crunched with Computer Physics Lab using inexact Particle-to-Black-Hole algorithm. Rendered in 3 minutes on a PC notebook.

Black Hole Tidal Force transform the original shape of NGC 5194. This simulation render 1 million particles.
